1. Nam, Sunghyun. Dynamics of Cyclic and Linear Poly(oxyethylene) and Threading Conformation in Their Blends.

Degree: PhD, Textile and Fiber Engineering, 2006, Georgia Tech

Chemically identical but topologically different cyclic and linear polymers not only result in marked differences in dynamics, but also lead to unique transport properties of their blends, where cyclic polymers have chances to be threaded onto the linear polymers. This dissertation addresses the effect of ring architecture on dynamics using different time/length scale techniques: self-diffusion coefficients, NMR spin-spin relaxation time (T2) and bulk viscosity. In deuterated water, synthesized cyclic poly(oxyethylene) (CPOE) (400-1500 g/mol) diffused faster than corresponding linear POE (LPOE) and linear POE dimethyl ether (LPOEDE). However, the self-diffusion coefficients in melts were arranged in the following manner: LPOEDE > CPOE > LPOE, in excellent agreement with T2 and viscosity data, showing topological and chain end effects. Compared to LPOEDE, both CPOE and LPOE had higher activation energies for viscosity with less dependence on the molecular weight. In the blends of CPOE and LPOE for 900 and 1500 g/mol, the diffusion coefficient and viscosity in melts were higher and lower than the values predicted by a binary mixing rule, respectively. These deviations were attributed to the threading conformation, and the weight fraction of the threaded chains for 1500 g/mol was estimated by a three-term mixing rule. This threading conformation also appeared to influence such important bulk properties as the glass transition and spherulitic growth rate of the blends. Advisors/Committee Members: Dr. Haskell W.

2. Hillock, Alexis Maureen Wrenn. Crosslinkable Polyimide Mixed Matrix Membranes for Natural Gas Purification.

Degree: PhD, Chemical Engineering, 2005, Georgia Tech

Crosslinkable mixed matrix membranes represent an attractive technology that promises both outstanding separation properties and swelling resistance for the purification of natural gas. This approach relies upon dispersal of a CO2/CH4 size-discriminating zeolite in a crosslinkable polymer, which is resistant to CO2 swelling when crosslinked. The resulting membrane has the potential to separate CO2 from CH4 more effectively than traditional pure polymer membranes, while also providing needed membrane stability in the presence of aggressive CO2-contaminated natural gas streams. Control studies are conducted using the pure crosslinkable polymer to observe the separation properties and swelling resistance. Initial crosslinkable mixed matrix membrane experiments are then performed and result in an increase in membrane productivity, instead of the expected increase in selectivity. Traditionally, this is caused by material incompatibility at the polymer/zeolite interface, so the crosslinkable mixed matrix membranes are characterized to examine this issue. During the material characterization, a new non-ideal transport phenomenon is discovered in the zeolite phase. A model is developed to better understand the transport and predict subsequent experimental results. Once the independent materials are proven to be viable, crosslinkable mixed matrix membranes that show enhancements in both efficiency and productivity and exhibit stability in the presence of aggressive CO2 feeds are created.

Rousseau (Committee Member), Dr. Stephen J. Miller (Committee Member).
